Band Prepares for the "Super Big Time American Traveling Concert Tour" with House of Heroes and The Wedding
WE’RE ALL GOING SOMEWHERE, Abandon Kansas’s debut EP on Gotee Records, just released as an iTunes exclusive. The Wichita-based band created this project with producer Mark Townsend (Relient K, House of Heroes), and it’s receiving rave reviews for its singalong hooks while never losing it’s indie rock edge.
The Lexington Music Press calls We’re All Going Somewhere “an addictive, sweet and melodic EP. 4 _ stars”, while The Album Project responds with “melodic rock songs which are so pure and inviting.”
To celebrate, the band will be performing a hometown release show on Sept. 11 in Wichita, KS followed by an event in Lake of the Ozarks, MO to support the Jefferson County Suicide Prevention Coalition. Then, Sept 13, the "Super Big Time American Traveling Concert" tour kicks off with House of Heroes and The Wedding.
“I can’t think of a better band to tour with, to kick of our new Gotee release than House of Heroes,” explains Jeremy Spring, vocalist for Abandon Kansas. “These guys are vocal gods, not to mention label mates, and we’re looking forward to watching them play every night.”
